Entrepreneurial Engineering

The University of South Carolina provides students the expertise and support they need to become successful entrepreneurs. We believe our students are creating technologies that will improve our communities. They just need help turning those innovations into successful products and companies.

Fostering Innovations and Entrepreneurship

Technology innovation coupled with entrepreneurship can sustain our national economic revival. The three major stakeholders - government, industry, and academia - are implementing major initiatives to support entrepreneurship. Federal funding agencies are emphasizing translational research. Private industry is developing partnership strategies to effectively access scientific discoveries. And, academic institutions are taking steps to create entrepreneurial ecology, equip students with business skills, and promote research interactions between faculty and the private sector.

The University of South Carolina spearheads a number of initiatives to foster the innovation potential of university research.
